Drake Slams Vancouver Casino Over Racial Profiling

Canadian rapper, Drake has had a good 2018 so far no doubt and despite being one of the most successful rappers in the world, the Grammy award-winning God’s Plan hitmaker still get treated like “just another Black guy.”

The In My Feelings rapper who has a white mother took to Instagram to slam a Vancouver casino that he says racially profiled him.

According to him, he was just trying to get his gamble on, but Parq Vancouver Casino had different plans.

“Parq Casino @parqvancouverbc is the worst run business I have ever witnessed … profiling me and not allowing me to gamble when I had everything they originally asked me for,” he wrote on his IG story.

Under new regulations, B.C. casinos need a “source of funds declaration” when depositing more than $10K to deter money laundering. Sounds like either Drake didn’t have his paperwork in order, or the casino couldn’t believe a Black guy had that much disposable dough. Or, the accounting department didn’t bother to do Google search.
